to provide tax breaks for those investing here in the united states. on energy, governor romney and i both agree that we've got to boost american energy production, and oil and natural gas production are higher than they've been in years. but i also believe that we've got to look at the energy source of the future, like wind and solar and biofuels, and make those investments. so all of this is possible. now, in order for us to do it, we do have to close our deficit, and one of the things we'll be discussing tonight is how do we deal with our tax code and how do we make sure that we are reducing spending in a responsible way, but also how do we have enough revenue to make those investment, and this is where there's a difference because governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 trillion tax cut on top of the extension of the bush tax cuts and military spending that the military hasn't asked for. that's $8 trillion. how we pay for that, reduce the deficit and make the investments we need to make without dumping those costs onto middle class americans, i think, is one of the centr

spending too much time in debate prep and not enough in rally in swing states, the romney campaign felt vindicated. although eric fehrnstrom pushed back on the notion that the republican contender was more ready than the president. >> well, look, you know, i think at the end of the day both the president and governor romney probably put in an equal amount of time preparing for this debate. >> reporter: just two days after the president joked his own advisors were pushing him to do more debate prep. >> they're making me do my homework. >> reporter: obama campaign manager said romney had an advantage going into the debate. >> governor romney's prepared more for this debate than any president in modern american history. when you're president, you can't take out an entire week. >> we don't need to have a board of 15 people telling us what kinds of treatments we should have. >> reporter: the rnc released a new web video called the smirk seizing on the president's sometimes uncomfortable body language. romney can only look to the obama campaign's own web video to see the president's next line

well, in massachusetts. because governor romney did a good thing, working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model and people are covered there. it hasn't destroyed jobs and as a consequence, we now have a system in which we have the opportunity to bring down costs as opposed to leaving millions of people out in the cold. >> mr. romney was the most aggressive of the two and did not mind interrupting the moderator. >> jim, the president began this segment, so i think i get the last word. >> he gets the first word, i get the last word. let me make this happen. i'm sorry, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i like big bird. i'm not going to keep spending on things from china to pay for it. if that's the case, it will be the best product to purchase. my experience is the private sector is typically able to provide a product at a lower cost. >> can the two of you agree, the voters have a clear choice on medicare? >> absolutely. let's mention the other one. >> let's not. >> the last point i would make before -- >> ten minutes is up, sir. >> i had five

(laughter) all right governor, tell the president directly why you think what he just said is wrong about obamacare? >> well, i did with my first statement but i'll go on. >> please elaborate. >> i'll elaborate. you're exactly right. first of all i like the way we did in the massachusetts. i like the fact that in my state we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did instead was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. as a matter of fact, when massachusetts did something quite extraordinary, elected a republican senator to stop obamacare, you pushed it through anyway. so instead of bringing america together and having a discussion on this
. it means that governor romney is talked about medicaid and how we could send it back to the states but effectively this means a 30% cut in the primary program we help for seniors who are in nursing homes, for kids who are with disabilities. >> lehrer: mr. president, i'm sorry -- >> that's not a right strategy for us to move forward. >> lehrer: way over the two minutes. >> sorry. >> lehrer: governor, what about simpson bowles? will you support simpson-bowles? >> simpson-bowles, the president should have grabbed that. >> pelley:>> lehrer: do you sup? >> i have my own plan. in my view the president should have grabbed it. if you wanted to make adjustments to it take it, go to congress, fight for it. >> that's what we've done. made adjustments and we're putting it before congress right now. $4 trillion plan. >> you've been president four years. you said you'd cut the deficit in half, it's four years later, we have trillion dollar deficits. the c.b.o. says we'll have a trillion dollar deficit the next four years. if you're reelected we'll get to a trillion dollar debt. you said before y
for companies that are investing here in the united states, on energy, governor romney and i both agree, we have to boost american energy production. and oil and natural gas production are higher than they have been in years. but i also believe that we have to look at the energy source of the future, like wind, solar and bio-fuels and make those investments. so all of this is possible. now, in order foritous do it, we to have to close our deficit. one of the think thises i am sure we will be discussing is how do we deal with our tax code and make sure we are reducing spending in a responsible way and have the revenue to make the investments. this is where there is a difference because governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 trillion tax cut, on top of the bush tax cut, which is $twenty one trillion and $2 trillion in additional military spending that the military hasn't asked for. that's $8 trillion. how we pay for that, reduce the deficit and make the investments we need to make without dumping those costs onto middle-class americans i think is one of the central questions of thi
romney is in florida today holding a rally in a matter of hours in that battle ground state as he refines his message on the employment picture. >>> and some big fundraising numbers out today. president obama and the democrats raised $181 million in september. that's the highest monthly re-election total so far. >>> also today, the romney camp claims it has collected more than $12 million in online donations and seeing bigger crowds on the campaign trail since wednesday's debate. >>> meanwhile about those jobs numbers, it is a figure splashed across the front page of most of the papers that hit your doorstep or driveways today. 7.8% below the critical 8% level. that number falling .2% from last month to the lowest level of the president's time in office spurred a conspiracy theory started in large part by former g.e. ceo jack welch who questioned the integrity of the number in a tweet. he then went on msnbc's "hardball" and refused to back down. >> do you mean it's a coincidence, or do you mean you have evidence that there was corruption? >> i have no evidence to corruption. none whatsoev
mitt romney. the obama campaign has run 233,000 ads in those states compared to -- i know your paper is still conducting its latest poll there in the key stoet states. but you published a poll in september. that poll showed president obama ahead of mitt romney by 11 points at that point, 50 to 39. all those obama tv ads may have had a big impact. what are the changes you expect in your next poll? >> well, after the debate performance i'd expect that romney is going to get another look at pennsylvania voters. so we'll probably see maybe a little bump for him, or some weak obama supporters might may move to undecided. it's sort of a reassessment maybe. and also interestingly, the obama folks have not been advertising in pennsylvania since about the end of august. they hadn't felt the need. >> you know, but a lot of people political analysts are going to say that your state is largely out of reach for mitt romney. what do you say to that? >> i'd say yeah, it's aup hill climb. it trends democratic. however, there are scenarios in which he could win if he is able to -- it usually comes do
romney say something. or what you think will help his chances in the swing states. >> well, carl, if we believe what we hear and what we've read in the last few days, this is the night for romney to hit a home run. he has a hit a home run. others said he needs to show himself as likable. i don't believe any of that. i think the choices in this election are so clear cut. what i'm looking for here is substance over form. we elected the likable guy in 2008. now we need to see that someone has a track record of performance in whatever it may be if you look at governor romney of course it's his state, it's the olympics, and of course it was his business experience. if we look at president obama, we've got to really look seriously at what's occurred over the last four years. in business as you both very clearly know, we rate people every year. we give them an appraisal. it's time to give president obama an appraisal. >> what do you want to hear from romney tonight to actually make that case to make sure accountability is there? >> i think governor romney actually needs to show us the strategy
but there is a strong start for mitt romney. and this is an astonishingly good start and a very bad start for the incumbent president of the united states. >> you know looking at the twitter universe which is not a science study and this is seeming to me one thing the governor did get tonight that is important is that there is a lot of enthusiasm. people on the other side of the political spectrum seem to be throwing president obama under the bus. >> that is the result of sort of dimensions of the debate. first is that in this debate, mitt romney succeeded as forward looking. got the chance to layout more details about jobs and economy and tax reforms, and this is making him look reasonable and practical z it was reassuring this is exactly the process happening in this one 1980 keeb debate. reagan made himself reasonable and reassured american people he was up for the job. second thing is that romney was aggressive, obama was defensive. the president was always on the defense. part because he didn't seem to have a plan for what he wanted to achieve tonight but there is romney also being a
in massachusetts because governor romney did a good thing working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model and as a consequence people are covered there. it hasn't destroyed jobs. >> romney, who ran from his massachusetts health care plan during the gop primaries, now used it to tag to the middle for the general election. >> i like the way we did it in massachusetts. i like the fact that in 3450i my state we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did instead was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. >> and romney's countless hours of rehearsals clearly produced lines like this. >> mr. president, you're entitled as a president your own airplane and your own house, but not your own facts. >> that was one of the few memorable one-liners of the night. what made the debate stand out was how zinger-free and substantive it was. especially on the candidates contrasting economic plans where are the problem for the president is he left many of romney's claims and charges unanswered, and left many democratic strate
. if mitt romney is elected president of the united states. would things pick up? >> if he repeals obama care as he said he will . and new rules in legislation, yes, that will change the small nature of business. and a real tax cut to put a shot in the arm to small enterprizes. and cash to liberate for the use of the private sector and should get things turned around. these are personal opinions. >> steve: he seems to what he's talking that's why so many people watch him on fox business net work. >> eric: a crazed fan taking a bite out of danny. >> steve: some say the debate will be er. washington insider. coming up with the scoup, next. ♪ ♪ two people are dead. motorcycle club getting ready for a charity ride when several armed men showed up and started shooting. cops said they had a argument in the parking lot. an attack on adonai. he said a fan within to kiss him and bit his face instead . he is not pressing charges, but he said she might have been on the drug bath salts. gretch, over to you. >> gretchen: crazy . mitt romney and president obama two days away from facing off. what
